I joined the Venturelli lab as a PhD student in the Spring of 2023. Prior to joining, I received my B.S. from South Dakota State University, managed a private aquaculture research lab in Brookings, SD, and am currently finishing up my M.S. at Missouri State University. Broadly speaking, my research interests are centered around using large datasets to inform management of aquatic species.
My current research focuses on using three streams of data to predict propagule pressure across the Upper Mississippi River Basin in the context of aquatic invasive species.
